Departing Chelsea midfielder Mikel John Obi has accepted a massive contract offer from China.
TMW says Tianjin Teda have tabled a three-year deal worth up to €9 million-a-year – which has been accepted by the Nigerian.
Valencia chief Suso Garcia Pitarch has confirmed talks with Mikel, but with no agreement struck.
The midfielder will be allowed to leave Chelsea on a free transfer this month.
The 29 year-old may now wait to see if Valencia up their proposal before making a final decision.
